Birth Plans- Yes or No?

In the past two weeks, I’ve attended three births, made five postpartum home visits, and taught two birth education classes. The end of January has been a magical one full of all things prenatal, birth, and postpartum.

In The BIRTHFIT Prenatal Series we approach the idea of birth plans a little differently. We approach them more as a deep dive into your preferences. We get to know who you are and your what you like/dislike. We pick apart a nine-page birth plan worksheet. And, we create your own birth mission statement and discover your preferences.

Use these worksheets below to get to know your preferences a little more:

Take these worksheets and use them for yourself. Understand that your birth philosophy may not line up with your doctor or midwife and that’s okay. However, make a change or accept that path, but know that the doctor or midwife is the quarterback of the team. Often times women are left with regret, sadness, and what-ifs because their expectations did not match the routine practices of the hospital or birth center. Get to know yourself and your desires and stand up for you!
